Universal Audio releases UAD Software v9.7 and Lexicon 480L Digital Reverb plug-in

Universal Audio

Universal Audio has released UAD Software version 9.7. The new release adds the Lexicon 480L Digital Reverb and Effects plug-in for UAD hardware and UA Audio Interfaces. Priced at $349, UA say the new plug-in is the world's only Lexicon-endorsed emulation of this classic studio reverb — "capturing its unique, infinitely moldable ambience and modulation splendor".

Released in 1986, the Lexicon 480L Digital Effects System and its iconic fader-driven remote control have resided at the center of famous studio consoles for more than 30 years. The 480L's spacious reverb and vivid effects textures are a coveted sonic benchmark, helping to shape thousands of chart-topping tracks to this day.

In addition to Lexicon's prized reverbs, the Lexicon 480L's random time-varying "Effects" algorithm provides dramatic reverse, doubling, tremolo and chorus sounds. Combined with its unique four-voice Twin Delay algorithm, the Effects algorithm is designed to turn the 480L into a versatile multi-effects system with creative potential.


Key Features:

  • Licensed and endorsed by Lexicon, featuring their pinnacle achievement algorithm designs.
  • Provides the essential sound and control set of the legendary Lexicon hardware.
  • Enduring Lexicon reverb and effects derived from final software version 4.10 including Plate, Hall, Room, Random, Ambience, Twin Delays and Effects algorithms.
  • UAD plug-in recreates iconic desktop "LARC" remote with logical workflow improvements.
  • Includes over 100 artist presets from Spike Stent, Chuck Zwicky, Eli Janney, Ian Boxill, Jacknife Lee, and more.
